At the same time my company sent out a survey to measure how comfortable everyone feels bringing their “authentic self” to work. Even setting aside the fact that I’m literally not allowed to bring my own authentic un-jabbed self to work, the contrast made me laugh. I am a better and more effective programmer and architect if my personality remains subdued behind my “mask.” See: Manners, Nowhere, Personhood.

I’m so proud of my kids:
